The Narrative clip

Yesterday, finally after a year of waiting, I got my Narrative clip camera. For those unfamiliar with it, its a small wearable camera, that automatically takes a 5Mpix photo every 30 seconds. It also stores the GPS location into every photo. The main purpose of a camera like this is to document your complete life. I personally don’t plan to do that, but I will like to use it when I take a photo trip to a new city. I’m usually preoccupied with looking around for good photos pots, and this camera will make a very nice behind the scene documentation.

I tried it a little the last two days, and it’s mostly what I thought. The quality of the photos is on par with a last years phone and as they say, around 5% of the photos are ok. Many of them are blurry, but with the number of photos taken, you end up with enough good ones anyway. I will try it more on my next trip (probably the Dubai one) and will post a review and more sample shots later.

Some photos are exactly how I would like them to be. Like this one. It’s nicely sharp, the colors are saturated, but not over-saturated, there is a nice clarity and it feels real, like if you were standing there. To bad not all my photos are like this yet, but I hope more and more are. There was this slogan in a commercial a long time ago “not always, but always more often”(does not sound as good as in the original German :)) and I try to have a similar view of my photos :)

This is a manual blend from 3 exposures.
